Hello Android fans, here’s what went down in the world of Android this week: Facebook launched its Lite app for entry-level Android devices, we’ve heard some troubling news about Sony, Qualcomm confirmed its overheating problems, ZTE and Meizu introduced new devices, alleged renders of the Galaxy S6 and One (M9) surfaced, we discussed Cyanogen’s plans to take Android from Google, and Microsoft launched its Outlook and Office apps for Android.
Meizu M1 announced: 5-inch display, LTE, 13MP camera, only $110
A popular question that we get asked here at Android Authority is, where is the best place to buy a Chinese OEM phone? Maybe you want an Oppo handset or something from Xiaomi, Meizu or even THL, but where to get it?
With part of the world celebrating holidays, news has been slow on the Android front, but we did our best to make it up with reviews, op-eds, and other long-form pieces. It wasn’t all quiet though – Asus teased a couple of very interesting phones coming at CES, more alleged specs of HTC’s next flagship leaked, OnePlus got a reprieve in its patent conflict with Micromax, and China’s Meizu launched its own Xiaomi competitor.
Welcome to Android Authority this week.
